Originally from Madrid, Spain, I came to New York City in 1994 and began my studies at Hunter college in 1998, where I fell in love with CUNY and all it has to offer its students. I continued pursuing my studies at the Graduate Center of CUNY where I received my Phd in Comparative Literature while working as an adjunct at John Jay College and the Fashion Institute of Technology. I also worked as a Writing Across the Curriculum fellow at Kingsborough Community College for two years. I joined the Queensborough College in the fall of 2015. My research and teaching interests include contemporary theater, primarily Irish, Argentine and Latinx theater; experiential learning facilitated by field trips across New York City and writing pedagogy.
